tycho- She should have told the dope that the 135 has basically the same engine as the 328 but the 1 is lighter and a turbo is added to the mix bumping hp/tq very nicely. Lighter car, more power equals faster car. Your GF needs to give him a lesson on Weight to power ratio.
Thinking about it, it isnt worth it. Hes a moron and she would be wasting her time.
